Schools remain open during stay-at-home order

SCDSB schools remain open during stay-at-home order
Posted on 04/07/2021

Today, the Ontario government announced a provincial stay-at-home order for all Ontario residents in an effort to further suppress the spread of COVID-19. This order does not apply to schools; therefore, in-person learning will continue and all SCDSB schools will remain open to students and staff. 

Students currently enrolled in the Learn@Home program will continue to attend class virtually.

Spring Break will continue as scheduled from April 12 to 16, 2021. At this time, we are planning for the regular return to school following the Spring Break on April 19, 2021; however, it is important that we are prepared to respond to public health measures that could include the need to move to a remote learning model. With that in mind, we encourage you to ask your child(ren) to take their personal belongings home with them on the last day of school before the break, Friday, April 9.

Should the decision be made by the Ministry of Education and public health officials to close schools to students, we will communicate directly with you to discuss next steps, including information on how to access technology, if required, for the purpose of remote learning.
